TMF Pixy, I just read your 'soapbox' article on Social Security. Right on!

I agree with you completely. I DO NOT need the social security funds to maintain my style of living - thanks to Foolish investments. However, my parents certainly did. Those of us who earn enough to be taxed on our social security benefits should be grateful to be so fortunate. Anyone living strictly on SS is not living very well. I don't like taxes much either, but I view this particular version as being my payback for living in a country that has enabled my success.

FYI. I'm not yet collecting. I just turned 58 and have been retired for nearly 2 years. Fool on!
